Lyrics

     I been down so long that it looks like up to me

     I been down so long that it looks like up to me

     Got a date tonight, I think her name is Misery

 

I fell into a pothole as I walked down the street

I fell into a pothole as I walked down the street

I thought to crawl out, but I was in my stocking feet

 

CHORUS

 

She said, “I love you, baby, but I just can’t be with you.”

She said, “I love you, honey, but I just can’t be with you.”

I said, “I’ll make you hate me, and maybe you’ll be in the mood.”

Carl LoSchiavo - bass

Lyrics

It’s one hundred, fifty-seven / underneath her cypress tree

She may say that it is heaven / but it feels like hell to me

I’m a sweaty carpetbagger / with a bellyful of wine

Dreaming ‘til I’m north of the Mason-Dixon Line

 

I can trace her silhouette in a / hazy, yellow afternoon

With this bottle as my pen / but the ink is empty soon

Magnolias in her bedroom / used to get me every time

Now fumes are my companion, north, of the Mason-Dixon Line

                         

Lord, I miss the snow in Pittsburgh / and the Massachusetts fall

And the moon in old Ohio / Lake Michigan, it calls

But they’ll never match the sweetness / of her honeysuckle sighs

Down below the Mason-Dixon Line / Down below the Mason-Dixon Line

Steve DeVries – banjo

Lyrics

Strolling through a shady afternoon

Nothing that I need to happen soon

Newspaper, coffee, magazine

October, music, lazy dreams

 

I’ll kick a stone and join the dance

Turn a smile into a glance

 

I’m moving in slow-motion time

Red and yellows wash outside the lines

The chimneys reach out for the clouds

I walk below and sing aloud

 

I’ll kick a stone and join the dance

Turn a smile into a glance

 

I’ll kick a stone and join the dance

Turn a smile into romance

Lyrics

Clap your hands / and keep the beat

And we’ll dance tonight on sunshine street

 

Looking back / is bittersweet

But it’s all ok on sunshine street

 

Put your tears in my paper cup

Leave them there until they’re gone / gone

 

A ragged voice / and two left feet

Are welcome here on sunshine street

 

Dancers move like tumbleweeds

Come on and join the jamboree

 

Clap your hands / and keep the beat

And we’ll dance tonight on sunshine street

Lyrics

Awake when watercolor dreams began

You wrote me letters in the sand

And though the water wet the puzzles in my mind

They came together in your hands

 

                The music’s hanging in the air

                The world is flashing here and there

                You found me once before, well,

                Look around once more and

                Take me back to Baltimore – to Baltimore

 

I like my coffee black and looks instead of words

I like the harbor lights of home

I like to hear you walking on those city streets

Makes me feel less alone

Lyrics

Miss Maxine says, “It’s lovely weather.

Sit a while, and we’ll watch the world together

From here on old lawn chairs.”

 

Brother Muir opens up the barroom

Gives a wink and a nod and a beer for a dollar

And here we’ll drink our share

 

Leaves will turn and faces change

Swept away and rearranged

 

It’s another storyline / helps us see the old sunshine

We’re in the place we had to find

Another storyline

 

Jimmy Carr ain’t around anymore

But we walked these streets, and he lived next door

And, man, I miss his smile

                                   

Leaves will fall and faces fade

And days they run and run away

 

It’s another storyline / helps us feel the old sunshine

We’re in the place we had to find

Another storyline / Another storyline / Another storyline

Lyrics

Hold me like a hometown every night

Sway me until I close my eyes

 

The snow is falling on this January morning

It whispers to me, but I can’t hear its warning

I wish I had a prettier song

A prettier song to sing to you – to you

 

Love doesn’t pass us, it only changes shape

Sometimes I feel your heart beat through my days

And if I had a prettier song

Then maybe I could be with you

 

A feeling so strong, I had no choice

Excuse my crooked point of view

But I wish I had

A prettier song for you – for you

 

I’ll throw my voice up to the sky

And hope to leave this town alive – alive

 

I wish I had a prettier song

A prettier song to sing to you

And if I had a prettier song

Then maybe I could be with you

Maybe I could be with you

Lyrics

Went to the closet for his coat

All he found were skeletons instead

Ran to the bar across the street

To try and drink those skeletons to bed

 

He stays in place and still he runs

He’s an icicle in the sun

 

He hangs his hat on yesterday

and numbs his guts on old T.V.

He sees the places he won’t go

And the people he won’t be

 

He wants a push that never comes

Icicle in the sun

 

The night, it staggers in his door

Like a drunk who’s lost his keys

It scares away distracted dreams

Turns them into refugees

 

His days are dripping one by one

He’s an icicle in the sun

 

The faces of old photographs

Ask the stars to turn their backs

He wonders how his well ran dry

As those skeletons unpack

 

He shares his life with coulda done

He’s an icicle in the sun

Icicle in the sun

Lyrics

The leaves that fall like parachutes

Are drifting past my self-defense

I’m spinning in circles, my head to the sky

And who’s to say if it makes any sense

 

My random thoughts go ‘round and ‘round

 

The cracks and drags of an old phonograph

Bring life to a past that we’ll never quite hold

It might’ve been better, it might’ve been worse

A gulf lies between what is truth and what’s told

 

My random thoughts go ‘round and ‘round

 

Plastic bags like blue whales float in the wind

The air like the ocean in someone’s cartoon

We’ll swim in its beauty and dive in the stars

I still believe in the man in the moon

Lyrics

Eddie, I’m sitting on the fence

Watching my life unfold

Do artists ever talk to God?

Their paintings do, I’m told

 

 

Eddie, I miss Morning Star Beer

When we’d tie on on and go to work

We should try to make a movie

of blood and bombs and sin and dirt

 

The Allegheny River / will take me to the sea

the truth lies hidden / but still we move

River set me free

 

We’ll add a priest, and dogs and cats

We’ll cast Lenore as sweet and kind

If you can’t see it with your eyes

You can feel it with your mind

 

Eddie, I’m thinking ‘bout Lenore

of no last name and pearl, black eyes

You say she hung me out to dry

I say she’s beautiful and wise

 

CHORUS

 

Eddie, I’m tearing down this fence

Let’s go out and hear the band

We can film along the way

and I will be a better man

Lyrics

Grinnin’ like a beer-barrel polka

She picked it up and threw it over

That’s how I lost my radio

 

Music played all the way to the street, oh

I could hear it through my broken window

That’s how I lost my radio

 

Rollin’ wheels of a Greyhound bus

Take her farther and farther away from us

 

Madhouse is overflowing

Guess I should get going

Ever since I lost my radio
